SECOND REGIMENT OHIO NATIONAL GUARD 

For the purpose of 
visiting the Panama- 
Pacific International Expo- 
sition at San Francisco, 
and the Panama-California 
Exposition at San Diego, 
in 1915, the Second 
Regiment Ohio Infan- 
try, Ohio National 
Guard, have perfected 
arrangements with various 
railway lines to insure the 
maximum comfort and 
pleasure to be derived from a Tour to the Pacific Coast. 

The Second Regiment extends to its friends an 
invitation to join them in this visit to the principal 
points of interest in this wonderful section of America, 
and in particular the two California Expositions and 
the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River in Arizona.

TOUR TO PACIFIC COAST, AUGUST, 1915 

The Second Regiment will have its own private 
trains, and our guests will have the privilege of travel- 
ing either in Pullman Standard or Pullman Tourist 
Sleeping Cars. The Sleepers will be occupied at all 
points of stop-over, except at San Francisco, Los 
Angeles and San Diego. 

Among the very many advantages to be gained 
by traveling in the special trains of the Second 
Regiment, the following may be briefly mentioned: 

A. Sleeping Car accommodations for the entire 
trip positively assigned before starting upon the tour. 
By traveling upon regular trains you are subjected 
to worry and loss of time seeking Sleeper reservations, 
especially if one attempts to make stop-overs at inter- 
mediate points. 

B. Saving of hotel expense at stop-over points 
and the inconvenience of seeking hotel quarters and 
transporting hand baggage.

C. Our special trains provide ample stop-over 
time at interesting points, then on to the next — no 
loss of time waiting for regular trains. 

D. Avoid all congestion and overcrowded 
trains. 

E. Hotel and meal facilities all previously 
arranged, affording protection against exorbitant 
prices during congested travel period and possible 
shortage of hotel facilities in San Francisco.
